My Minnie Mouse Manicure : D

Photobucket

Here is my first attempt at nail art; I called this my Minnie Mouse manicure. (Don't you think it looks like it with the red tips and white polka dots?) :D I recently saw this design in a Japanese nail magazine and really wanted to try it out. I'm actually quite happy with the results considering it's my first time. : ) I'm trying to work on my right hand now as I'm typing this post. Teeheehee! :D

I used OPI Big Apple Red for the tips and OPI Alpine Snow for the polka dots. The silver glitter was a no name brand that I picked up at a Japanese dollar store; it has a very thin brush specially made for nail art. : ) There are so many more designs that I want to try out from the magazine. Japanese nail art is simply amazing! I'm loving it!<3

  1. Hi Wan *waves*

    That look is super cute! I would've never thought to use red tips because red tips on it's own always seemed a bit.. bloody to me. But I really do like this manicure it's very Minnie Mouse's dress! I did a polkadot one before but I used a purple tip and rhinestones as the dots which cost me lot of rhinestones that time lol

  2. I love that! So cute! :)

    I found a web site the other day, that has many swatches of different polishes and they seem to be from all different people. I was looking through the pictures and saw some of the photos you have recently posted. I don't know if you are aware of this, but just in case you aren't I thought I would let you know. That will probably be the last time I look at that web site, because I got a feeling they didn't ask permission to take people's photos. Correct me if I'm wrong. Here's the site: http://nailgal.com/index.php?cat=0

  8. Joyce- Hi Joyce! *waves back* : D I never really liked red nail polishes either. I always thought they were kinda meh...but I recently tried a few and realized they're actually not that bad. : ) They're very feminine and make your nails pop. They also make your hands look a lot more pale and not as tanned. (as preferred by asians :D) I wanted to get some rhinestones for nail art the other day and realized they were actually really expensive..even at beauty supply stores. *sniff*sniff* I wonder if they'll have it anywhere else for cheaper. : )

    Olivia- Thanks for letting me know Olivia! However, I have uploaded those pictures on there myself like all the other ladies who have posted pictures there. : ) Nail Gal is actually a community nail polish gallery where everybody can share pictures and swatches of their polishes. It's a great site and a very helpful resource! You can find almost everything on there. All the polishes are sorted by their colours and then finishes. Maybe you can upload pictures of your lovely polishes on there so that other people can enjoy them as well. :D

    Lucy- Thanks! I'm super happy with how it turned out! I think I'm going to keep it on for a few more days. : ) I just recently purchased my dotting tool and have not had enough practice with it. I was so worried my polka dots were going to turn out all distorted. Well, they are kinda right now but you can't really see them from far away. : ) Must practice more! :D

    Kae, Lisa, Princess, and Celine- Thank you very much ladies! :D

    Selina- You should definitely give it a try! I'm sure it'll look great on you! : ) I'm planning to do another one of these too, this time with multi-coloured tips. :D

  10. I wonder if it would be worth looking for rhinestones at places other than beauty supply stores? Perhaps craft stores?

    I just recently bought myself a dotting tool, it's so much fun! My 13 year old daughter asked for white nails with black dots and it looked super cute!

  11. Selina- Thank you very much for your advice! I will definitely try looking for them somethere else. Hmm, perhaps ebay might have them for the cheapest? Let me go check it out. : )
